State Representative Mark Pody (R–Lebanon) joined with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development today to announce that Dekalb County has been chosen to participate in the Select Tennessee Property Evaluation Program (PEP). Launched in 2015, the purpose of the PEP is to improve the inventory of industrial sites and buildings in Tennessee by evaluating potential properties, advising counties on where investment may be most beneficial, and to discover what is needed to address issues found that may be impeding area economic development. The PEP benefits counties by emphasizing the importance of and assisting with planning for future industrial development.
